WHO CARES ? : 16 Essays on Curating in Asia
edited by Michael Lee
This anthology compiles 16 essays on curating art in and of Asia. One of the themes is the politics of care,
commonly understood as the basic roles of curators, with regards to art and artists, across time and contexts.
Another theme revolves around markers of success in the realm of contemporary curating.
A third recurring theme deals with curating in the globalized art world of advanced travel and communication
technologies. A fourth theme reconsiders the audience as active producers in an artistic and curated experience.
Through a variety of perspectives and literary styles, these texts constitute primary notes towards “Curatorial Criticism”,
a subfield of cultural criticism that identifies the new in curating today.
